Billy Bush’s fall from grace continues.
Nearly a year ago, a tape was leaked of Bush and now-President Donald Trump making inappropriate comments about a woman. He was consequently suspended from the “Today Show.”
According to People, Bush later issued a public apology, saying, in part:
“Obviously I’m embarrassed and ashamed. It’s no excuse, but this happened eleven years ago— I was younger, less mature, and acted foolishly in playing along. I’m very sorry.”
Though for some, an apology may not have been enough.
Yes, Billy Bush has been suspended from “Today,” but how do we go about suspending him from “Tomorrow”

TMZ now reports that Bush and his wife of 20 years, Sydney Davis, are calling it quits. TMZ added that the pair is “separated for the moment to evaluate their life together.”
Earlier in 2017, Bush admitted to The Hollywood Reporter that he regretted his behavior, citing that he’s in the business of raising women.
“I am in the women-raising business, exclusively. I have three daughters — Mary, Lillie, Josie — and I care very much about the world and the people they encounter,” he explained.
Perhaps his wife felt differently. Neither Bush nor Davis has made a public comment about the news.
